Georiga will soon be the first state to allow the sale of medical marijuana in pharmacies, according to CNN. The "...extremely narrow criteria spelled out in Georgia's conservative medical cannabis law" points to people having the ability to "buy low-dose THC products at their pharmacy--a first in the United States."

The question: could Montana be next?

Current Cannabis Sales and Licensing in Montana

According to the Cannabis Control Division of the Montana Department of Revenue, there are limitations that may make a provision like this more difficult in Montana.

The Counties

Montana has "red" and "green" counties, and depending on the results of Initiative I-190, you may or may not be able to sell in a particular Montana county. That would limit which pharmacies could sell THC products.

Who Can Sell

There are limitations on who can sell. According to the Cannabis Control Division:

From January 1, 2022, until July 1, 2025, only Montana medical marijuana licensees who were licensed on April 27, 2021 (or had an application pending with DPHHS on that date) may be issued a license for cultivation, manufacture, or sale of adult-use marijuana. - mtrevenue.gov

It can be assumed that if a pharmacy didn't meet those criteria, it wouldn't be able to sell THC products.

Why It May Not Matter

In Montana, dispensaries can sell both medical marijuana and adult-use marijuana. It's possible that for now, there are enough THC products that having them available at pharmacies isn't necessary. Though, if a patient lives in a "red" county, that may not be the case.

But would it be more convenient? And if it would be, is that enough reason for state law to be changed? Send us your thoughts about having medical marijuana available in pharmacies on our app.
